Volunteering at Slovenian Philanthropy
On Thursday, January 12, 2023, MEP Irena Joveva will take part in the voluntary work of teaching the Slovenian language to Ukrainian men and women in Slovenia, namely at Slovenian Philanthropy.
It is the “MEP Job Shadowing” project, through which a member of parliament and a volunteer symbolically switch jobs for one day, or, more precisely, help each other at work.
The “MEP Job Shadowing” program is part of the “Citizen Engagement for Recovering – Volunteering Solidarity” (CERVIS) project, which is co-financed by the European Commission through the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values (CERV) program.
Conversation with students
On Thursday, January 12, 2023, MEP Irena Joveva will take part in a conversation with the students of the Domžale High School, where she will talk to them about the subject of active citizenship. She will present to the students her work in the European Parliament and the priority areas in which she works.
The conversation, which will be led by two high school students, will last one hour.
Interactive discussion on the European Media Freedom Act
On Thursday, December 8, 2022, at 9 a.m., we are preparing an interactive discussion with students about media freedom in the EU.
The main thread of the event will be the upcoming European Media Freedom Act (MFA), where speakers will first present the act, followed by an interactive workshop for students.
Participants in the event will be:
- MEP Irena Joveva
- Minister of Culture Asta Vrečko
- Lenart J. Kučić, media adviser to the Minister of Culture
- dr. Marko Milosavljević, Chair of Journalism, FDV
When presenting the act, the speakers will focus on why we need this act, what it brings and what it means for Slovenia and media freedom throughout the European Union, as well as how to enable independent and objective media that people trust. The discussion will also be interesting from the point of view of the outcome of the referendum on RTV. This part of the event is expected to last just under an hour.
In the interactive workshop, the students will be assigned tasks in groups, where their goal will be to analyze the aforementioned act and find solutions and compromises that would ensure an adequate solution to the issue of media freedom. At the end, they will briefly present their ideas as a group, followed by closing comments.
